GRIDCo announces daily outages in Accra from Saturday to June 30

The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has served notice customers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will endure day-time outages from Saturday, April 9 to Thursday, June 30.

This is due to a project to re-construct transmission lines from the Achimota substation through Avenor to the Mallam substation.

“This important exercise is to meet the growing demand for electricity in Accra and its environs,” the Company said in an announcement dated Friday, April 8, 2022.

The work is said to involve taking out of service two 16kV transmission lines.

The outage is to enable GRIDCo to upgrade the transmission capacity on each line.

“The outage will affect customers served by the Electricity Company of Ghana’s (ECG) distribution system crossing these transmission lines (between the Achimota Substation at Dzorwulu and Avenor in Accra) during the day, for the stated period.

“GRIDCo apologises for any inconvenience caused during the period.”
